GRACE Ltd, an Athens-based Space consultancy firm displays its moderate optimism for 2011 even through the particularly harsh conditions, results of the current economic crisis.
The last quarter of 2010 has been a period of investment and consolidation for this Greek SME, whose operations are concentrated in the zone of Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans area.
Funded by the European Commission in the framework of Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme in 2010, the firm has been particularly active in achieving substantial partnerships with several industry actors.
Taking profit of its strong knowledge of the regional market and its marketing capabilities, GRACE joined P.L.A.N. consulting group: www.planinc.com, a network of high-profile consulting companies and experts in Space applications and Earth Observation sectors. This team is a leading actor in marketing and capacity building, with more than 20 years of experience in its zone of operations which covers more than 15 countries.
Through the EC Entrepreneurship Programme, GRACE became a partner of Mea Intuis: www.earth-observation.com, a consulting firm with an outstanding expertise and long worldwide experience in Earth Observation matters.
In parallel the firm participated in major Space-related events and conferences in Europe and continues to successfully market the survey on the Greek market “Space Technologies and Applications in Greece: A Market Study”, available since the beginning of 2010.
Due to its presence in the export markets and its valuable partnerships with top-caliber actors including first-size industries, GRACE welcomes 2011 with hope and confidence in supporting the development and the progress.
